Valentine Mug Rug

I'm thrilled and honored to be sharing a fun little mug rug tutorial I made especially for you, for Valentines Day!  {This tutorial is from 2011, but it's such a popular little mug rug, I thought I'd re-post again for you!}

This little mug rug has a bit of Ric Rac trim to hold a Valentine for that special someone.

And a cute mini ruffle around the edge that reminds me of the Valentines we use to create at school when we were kids. Makes me want to go out and buy a roll of crepe paper.

Quilts for Gifts Part 3

This quilt was started at the Quilt Bliss Retreat I attended last January in Utah! I bought the fabric at Portland Quilt Market in Spring 2013. It's from the cute girls of ADORNit! 

The pattern is Flower Box from Vanessa of V and Co. ... I LOVE this pattern.  

I knew when I bought this fabric that it would eventually become a quilt for my Daughter-in-Law.... (she's kinda crazy for Owls)... 

Denae Hansen of Plain Jane Quilting did the quilting and it's perfect for this quilt! She did an awesome job.  The pattern is called 'Feather'... 

 I had so much fun sewing up this quilt last year... And I'm so happy to know that more of my family will have quilts from me... 

I'm having fun right now picking patterns for this year's Quilts for Gifts!  Just wish I could share with you! It's so hard for me to keep a secret...

Happy Sewing!!! ooxx`jodi

Quilts for Gifts Part 2

I have been wanting to make this quilt since I first saw the pattern... I fell totally and completely in love at first sight!  

The pattern is called 'Strawberry Social' from Margot Languedoc of The Pattern Basket.... 

This quilt went to my sister. I hadn't made my sister a quilt either. And it was time. 

Strawberries are kinda our thing. We grew up picking them not only for our mom for homemade freezer jam and other nummy treats every summer.  But we also spent many hours picking them for spending money, gas money, clothes money, etc... 

Abby Latimer quilted it for me and I LOVE the pattern. It's called Strawberries!   

I normally don't make quilts twice.  But I just might have to make myself one of these.
